Designing for Resilience & Availability in Electronics
We are re-engineering for the future
Future Electronics understands the lead-time impacts of the worldwide chip shortage. Engineers and product teams have been forced to make adjustments and rely on short-term-solutions.
As a worldwide leading electronic components distributor, we go a step further — we manufacture long-term solutions.
How do we do it?
Our engineering teams are built on trust and confidence to have you equipped for the future. By doing business with us, you can design efficiently without concerns and be fully-prepared for whatever comes your way.
We put two key concepts that have been engrained in the Future Electronics engineering culture in action to ensure you can quickly adjust on the fly without compromising the fluidity of the design process.
Design for Resilience: Selecting Components to Maximize Production Options over Time
Future’s engineers can advise from architecture to production resilient component strategies to maximize multi-vendor options where possible, and providing key supplier information to understand lifecycles and longevity
We utilize factory level training from many suppliers to provide agnostic expertise on the strengths and weaknesses of solutions for your design
We emphasize interchangeability of parts in preparation for rapidly-changing production requirements and product availability
We look to reduce an end product’s total number of parts to mitigate stress on the BOM and decrease possible supply chain issues
Design for Availability: Worry-Free Redesigns
We are uniquely-positioned to efficiently redesign a product in the event of a shortage with wide knowledge of supplier inventories
We make best use of existing materials to ensure there are no delays to your design process and start pipelining product upon architectural selection
We continuously refine product portfolios to understand supplier pricing models and help our customers choose the most cost-effective solutions
We look at existing production BOMs to find fit, form, and function replacement or assist in selecting parts that could be used with minor redesign
